Loose Girl: A Memoir of Promiscuity by Kerry Cohen
Loose Girl: A Memoir of Promiscuity

BrittleeB303, December 8, 2008

Kerry Cohen is only 11 years old when she realizes the power of a womans body. She goes off to bars, and parties in search of new boys, using each as a rebound to get over the last. She wants to be loved more than anything in the world, but once she gets it from these guys, she grows bored with them. What is wrong with me? She thinks to herself? She does drugs, and pretends to act like another person to get these men to like her. It is not until she finally thinks that she has no feeling left in her, and that she doesn't care anymore that she falls in love with someone, but she herself is scared of what is to come.
